This is a diamond in the rough.
Very smart writing and interesting story with characters who are fully fleshed and pretty dang awesome. The sex was hot too and just enough to not overwhelm the story. Great balance between action, romance and dialogue. Good descriptors so you get detailed, but not too detailed, pictures of setting and characters. I fell in love with Adam; he's so curmudgeonly! I love a grump that's lovingly coaxed into showing his vulnerabilities.
I'm glad I took a chance on this one and I can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next.
I sooo want to love and learn more about Micah's character (he is just perfect in all of his handsome clumsiness), and I was excited about reading the book because it is the perfect storyline for me (m/m romance, with mystery and FBI agents). I was upset to find much of the writing confusing to follow. I found where certain chapters or group of paragraphs would end in the present, but then the beginning of the next chapter would immediately shift back to the past. I understand that often this was done to give both sides of a situation (from each characters perspective) but somehow it didn't work well for me. I would read one paragraph and there would be a time shift that made me feel "left out" of what happened - like the shift came out of nowhere. I have seen this done in other books, White Knight by J. Lanyon comes to mind, but in that book the reader is privy to the fact that we are being moved between the present & past, why it is happening and it is clearly shown when the shift is happening. I'm not a writer, but I assume this is done through indicators or certain writing that helps you understand the shift and make sense of it. I didn't get that feeling here.
Some of the dialog was also a little confusing. The bar scene comes to mind, at the Beaver. Adam says something about Micah looking like. M. Gubler, then they shift to talking about Thanksgiving, then out of nowhere Micah asks "Matthew who?" - when a whole other conversation happened in between. Then we shift right back to Thanksgiving again. I wish I could articulate better how this all played out, but it just made the scene confusing to me when trying to follow their conversation.
I do want to finish the book, and totally intend to, and will update my review if the writing flows better. I understand this is a debut novel, and I wish the writer the best as she moves through writing this series of books (no idea how many are planned, but I did see a new one coming out soon).
